Menlo Park, CA.
Reception following in the church's Lehman Hall
Larger than life, with a smile that lit up any room he entered, John was best known to his parents as John T., to his friends as "Churchie", and to his family as "Under.” John was a storyteller with a quick, deadpan wit and long, loving memory of the best of times with family, friends, and work colleagues. He touched so many throughout the course of his short life – his dear friends on the North Shore, at the U of A, in SAE, in the film business in LA and New York, in the amazing Menlo Park and Little League communities, and at his wonderful job at Apple.
His final, not yet fully finished story, is that of his amazing children. John deeply loved his children – Freddy (13), Bobby (11) and Lucy (7). We cannot imagine the anguish they must feel at the loss of such a special father and role model. Thankfully, with Elizabeth's love and guidance they will carry on John's legacy.
With this legacy in mind, we announce the establishment of the “John Churchill Family Support Fund” to memorialize his life and support his family because of their tragic loss. In an effort to help Elizabeth manage their future, please consider a contribution to this fund to help support their lives and education in lieu of flowers or gifts.
By giving, we are helping John’s kids stay on course for a bright future. Thank you for your consideration and for the outpouring of your love and support of the Churchill family.
Elizabeth and John’s family are grateful beyond words for your support! Your kindness is deeply appreciated.
Just a note re the service: St. Bede's Episcopal Church is at 2650 Sand Hill Road, but our parking lot is entered from Monte Rosa Dr.; there will be additional parking at 2550 Sand Hill Road (Greylock Partners/First Republic), a 5-minute walk to the church, as well as street parking along Monte Rosa. Due to the expected attendance, please allow extra time for parking. There will also be additional seating and a simulcast of the service, with Eucharist, in Lehman Hall (the first building on your right as you enter the parking lot). Food and drink will be served in the courtyard after the service, with a memorial slideshow and testimonials inside Lehman Hall. Thank you to all the family, volunteers and donors for supporting the Churchills during this sad time.
We meant to say "Elizabeth" and not Kate in our donation comments We loved the picture. Claire C.
